Read My Lips by nagi_schwarz (mostly M, with some E)

Show(s): Stargate Atlantis/Stargate SG1

Rec Category: Crossovers
Pairing(s): John/Rodney, Evan/Jonathan (clone!Jack)
Characters: John, Rodney, Evan, Radek, Carson, etc.
Categories: emotional hurt/comfort, physical impairment, pining, angst
Warnings: John’s violently tragic backstory, Patrick Sheppard being awful
Author on LJ: ficsco_and_nagi
Link: Read My Lips

Why this must be read: This is an Atlantis-based AU that has one major difference from canon: John Sheppard is a deaf mathematician. He and Rodney have the best meeting ever, he proves himself just as necessary to the expedition as he did when he was a Major, and he has a terrible, horrible backstory. (Spoiler: he wasn’t born deaf)

I love how John’s physical impairment alters canon events, and changes the way the expedition members relate to him. And I love that at the core of himself John is just the same as he always was, ready to do what’s necessary to protect the people he loves.

As always, nagi_schwarz does a wonderful job with the variety of POVs she employs to fill out this 'verse and make it work so well. She's especially adept at writing Evan as John's put-upon translator, and Jonathan as the tortured clone who has to build a whole new life for himself. Is there anything she can't write in this fandom? Answer: no! ::grins::

Know How to Fall by Auburn (R)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Alternate Universe
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Teyla Emmagan, Elizabeth Weir, Others
Pairings: McKay/Sheppard
Categories: Slash, Alternate Universe, Romance, Mystery
Warnings: None
Author on LJ: auburnnothenna
Author's Website: Allusions
Link: Know How to Fall

Why This Must Be Read:
Author's summary: Three-day event rider John Sheppard inherits Pegasus Farm and falls hard for prickly neighboring horse trainer Rodney McKay when he decides to build a new life there with old friend Teyla Emmagan and her son. Meanwhile, John's friendship shakes up Rodney's life, making him want to take chances again, but a harassment campaign aimed at making John sell Pegasus turns violent and soon endangers them all before anyone can figure out what and who they really want.

Every once in a while I'll read an AU story and wonder where the author got the idea that throwing a show's characters into this specific random scenario would work. Naturally, sometimes it doesn't. But sometimes, like in this instance, it works brilliantly. Despite seeming like something completely out of left field for him, Rodney really is believable as a stable manager and horse trainer and John... well, John's really just John only with horses instead of planes. To top it all off, Auburn's writing is beautiful and the storytelling riveting. I enjoyed every moment of this story.

Power Of The @ (Or The Best Way To Annoy A Colonel) by Tiv'ester (G)

Show: SG1
Rec Category: humour, friendship
Characters: Daniel Jackson, Jack O'Neill, Robert Rothman
Pairing:
Het/Slash/Gen:

Link: here

Why this must be read: Daniel and Robert... that in itself is enough to draw me in :) But this is a gently comical slice of life on base, with the two academics teaming up against Jack... The joke may be (and is) unsubtle, but it's still good fun, and Daniel's po-faced, perfectly terrifying use of academese to win is just beautiful...

"That's an @, the symbol for A'at. He was a powerful Goa'uld and a contemporary of Ra's. He was the god of all things above - that's the sun, moon, sky, stars, planets and clouds. He wielded some sort of magic known as the power of the @. No one knows what it was, but it was rumored to be some all-powerful ability granted to his acolytes. The thought was, the path of those who follow the @ is uncertain, but the abilities gained therein will make masters of those who attain the knowledge."

Been There, Done That, by Teand (PG)

Show: SG1
Rec Category: humour
Characters: Daniel Jackson, Jack O'Neill, General Hammond, Samantha Carter, Teal'c
Pairing: hint of Jack/Daniel, also one-sided Daniel/most of the galaxy :)
Het/Slash/Gen: Barest touch of slash...

Link: Been There, Done That

Why this must be read: Because it takes the fandom's favourite Daniel fanon (which I am fond of too!) and sends it up ruthlessly. Hammond's world-weariness and Jack's pissiness (and Teal'c's! I love Teal'c's blink and you miss it part in this) are fabulous but best of all if Daniel's phlegmatic acceptance of his role as Intergalactic Sex Object, mixed with a unstoppable and adorably Daniel fascination for all the social and academic inferences of, well, his role as Intergalactic Sex Object...

"Where is Dr Jackson?"

"The locals wouldn't let us leave unless Daniel stayed behind as their Warlord's sex-slave."

Hammond could feel his blood pressure rising. "Tell me you're kidding, Jack."

"I'm not kidding."

"That's the third time this month!"

"Fourth, sir," Major Carter corrected stepping out from behind her team leader...

...who snorted. "Come on Carter, you can't count PC7 23R; that was more of a Daniel gets taken over by alien mind control situation."

"Yes sir; in order to become the emperor's sex-slave."

Juris Imprudence, by nagi_schwarz (M)

Show(s): Stargate Atlantis/Stargate SG1

Rec Category: Crossovers
Pairing(s): John/Rodney, Jack/Daniel
Characters: John, Rodney, Evan, Cam, Jack, Sam, et al.
Categories: AU, emotional hurt/comfort, humor, shenanigans
Warnings: angsty backstories, mentions of PTSD and child abuse
Author on LJ: ficsco_and_nagi
Link: Juris Imprudence

Why this must be read: nagi_schwarz describes this series at being like Ally McBeal, with more slash, more military, and possibly robots. This is actually very accurate. ::grins:: The law firm of Woolsey, O’Neill & Weir is made up of former military, spookily competent aides, and Evan Lorne, who may or may not be a robot (it’s a running gag). The lawyers here cover all the different aspects of law, from tax law (John) to law guardians (Daniel) and everything in between.

It’s also about John meeting Rodney and feeling that zing of instant attraction, and Jack realizing that he and Daniel have a connection that goes back to Jack’s military days. At turns hilarious, heart-wrenching and sweet, this is a great AU to settle in with.

Treading Water by reflex (PG-13)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Alternate Universe
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Carson Beckett, Ronon Dex, Teyla Emmagan, Elizabeth Weir, Radek Zelenka
Pairings: None
Categories: Gen, Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Drama, Cannon AU
Warnings: Genetic experimentation, child neglect/abuse
Author on LJ: Unknown
Author's Website: at The Jumper Bay
Link: Treading Water

Why This Must Be Read: Treading Water is the first in a series of three stories. This story mostly fits into early cannon, except for Rodney's 'secret'. He has gills, and not as a result of Bizarre Ancient Do-Hicky of the Week, but because he'd been part of an experimental genetics project as a child.

The first story in the series is about how the team find out about this and their reactions, but also a bit about Rodney slowly learning to be okay with this weird thing that's been a part of him his whole life and he's never liked. The second story is a peek at Rodney as a kid being shipped out to his estranged uncle's house for summer vacation. Though full of original characters, this story might actually be my favourite of the series. The characters are interesting and engaging, and provide a good set of eyes through which to see child Rodney. Reflex also managed to stick in a clever little reason for the science fair nuke Rodney built when he was 12. The third story in the series is pretty much a bonus adventure set in Atlantis some time after the first story, which elaborates even more on some of Rodney's experiences as a child and on his abilities.

The series is well-written and interesting. There's angst abound, but with enough humour and lighter bits to keep the stories from being quite as dark as they could be. I really enjoyed reading this series and definitely recommend it to everyone!

The Oppenheimer Effect, nagi_schwarz (M)

Show(s): Stargate Atlantis/Stargate SG1

Rec Category: Crossovers
Pairing(s): John/Rodney, Evan/Cam/JD
Characters: John, Rodney, Evan, Cam, JD (clone!Jack), etc.
Categories: emotional hurt/comfort, friendship, pining, angst
Warnings: PTSD, foster kids with terrible backstories, polyamory angst, hospitalization, coming out angst, injury angst, all the angst!
Author on LJ: ficsco_and_nagi
Link: The Oppenheimer Effect

Why this must be read: This is a series that starts out incredibly cute, and then piles on the angst. It’s an AU where Cam never recovered the use of his legs after the Battle of Antarctica, John can no longer fly due to injuries sustained in a crash, and Lorne got a medical discharge after the incident with the Unas. They all share a house with Jack’s young clone, JD, and they all teach at a school for disadvantaged youth.

Enter Rodney, who only meets these guys because they find his wayward cat while he’s away at a conference. Love blooms, secrets are kept (John doesn’t know about the SGC at first), and chances are taken. There are some wonderful OCs, and I just love how much these men, each damaged in their own way, support each other. They really are a family, in all the best ways.

This is an active ‘verse, and Nagi is adding to it all the time. Don’t miss a tear-jerking moment!

Germination (by thingswithwings) (E)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Tentacle fic.
Characters: Rodney McKay, Jennifer Keller, John Sheppard, Teyla Emmagan, Ronon Dex
Pairings: Rodney McKay/Jennifer Keller
Categories: Het
Warnings: No real ones, but see the notes at the start.
Author on LJ: thingswithwings
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: Germination on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: Ending this month of tentacle-fic on a consensual note with Jennifer and Rodney bringing the fact that Jennifer TURNED INTO AN ACTUAL HOT DAMN TENTACLE MONSTER into their bedroom, after she's human again. As Busaikko once said, SGA is the fandom with real live tentacle penetration - the sort of thing other fandoms can only dream about. (Sadly not the sexy kind on the show, sorry John and Ronon.) This is really great, sweet and hot, as Jen's brush with almost becoming a Hive ship enlivens her and Rodney's fantasy life. I also love how tentative and real they are, stumbling toward discovering that it's a secret turn-on for them both. Great character voices, as ever, and it's funny as well.

"Scavengers" by Tepring (aka T'Pring) (T)

Show: SGA
Rec Category: Sheppard & McKay Friendship
Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Evan Lorne, Radek Zelenka, Ronon Dex, Teyla Emmagan, various OCs
Pairings: none
Categories: gen
Warnings: none
Author on LJ: tepring
Author's Website: none
Link: Scavengers by Tepring

Summary by the author:
This is what happens when you let whumpers request a plot: John Sheppard is kidnapped, shot, forced to aid
hostile aliens in their campaign to steal Ancient technology...and he doesn't even have to step foot off Atlantis to do it. John's really bad day.

Author’s Notes:
"This fic came about as the result of an evening of chatting (and drinking) with some awesome cool GW whumpers at the Chicago SG convention last month. As a frequent whump writer I was given the task of writing a story that included these prompts: Kidnapping, drippy blood, restraints, John's ATA gene in a key role, and John to 'really go off the deep end'. Despite the odd combination, I think I've squeezed everything in in some fashion or other."

And boy, did she squeeze in everything! *ggg* For this one, add thrilling, suspense-packed, resourceful to the usual merits of Tepring's writing (such as good characterization, voices etc). At first it seems to be a little "off" regarding the characters and confusing regarding the events, but keep reading because you won't have to wait long for everything to make more sense with each part you read and then you'll pass the point of no return and you won't be able stop reading. So, don't start this if you should go to bed or to work. ;-)

I also very much like Radek in this and the aspects of "military versus scientist competition" that come to a very satisfying end.

This is set in S5 when John and Rodney are already good friends but despite this they guys are still learning more about themselves and their friedship. Tepring is a master of this. Don't miss this one.

Three Days in the Life of Rodney McKay - Part 1: The Day McKay Learned Sheppard was Smart by Tepring
Summary by the author:
Rodney McKay was an ambitious man, but his ambitions were of the intellectual variety. He could care less about money as long as there were plenty of people around telling him he was the smartest guy in the room. He had that title neatly wrapped up (whenever Sam wasn't on base) until a certain John Sheppard sauntered into the Antarctic Base. Story features early days of Atlantis, so enjoy "researching" references to those first season episodes!

Link: Three Days in the Life of Rodney McKay - Part 2: The Day McKay Learned Sheppard was Brave by Tepring
Summary by the author:
Then he did the thing that convinced Rodney that Sheppard was either insane, or the bravest man he’d ever met.

Link: Three Days in the Life of McKay - Part 3: The Day McKay Thought Maybe Sheppard Might Be His Friend by Tepring
Summary by the author:
Sheppard nearly didn't survive his new Gate Team's very first mission offworld. What wraith warriors, a wraith queen and a dozen darts hadn't managed in their first hours on Atlantis, a mindless insect and malfunctioning drive-pods nearly did.

Link: Three Days in the Life of Rodney McKay - Part 4 The Day McKay Was Sure by Tepring
Summary by the author:
The chains that snaked from ankles to wrists to ceiling loosened as they had the previous five times and released his arms from where they’d hung above his head. Teyla and Sheppard’s chains also dropped, but this time, Sheppard also sank to his knees, as if the chain had been the only thing keeping him standing.

Tepring does an excellent job showing how Rodney gets to know John and in this process also undergoes his own kind of development, resulting in a better knowledge of who he and John really are, under the surface. Her understanding of the characters, what makes them tick, is just *awesome*. She knows the boys so well. Their interactions, their voices and characteristics - spot on. Tepring shows the depth which the series itself couldn't show in 43 short minutes per episode.

Able to Fly by bussaiko (R)

Show: SGA
Rec Category: Alternate Universe
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Teyla Emmagan, Ronon Dex
Pairings: John/Rodney
Categories: Slash, Alternate Universe, Haunting, Adventure
Warnings: None
Author on LJ: busaikko
Author's Website: AO3 profile
Link: Able to Fly

Why This Must Be Read: In this story John and Rodney meet when they're both kids. Well, sort of. Rodney's a kid. John is a ghost of a kid haunting a comic book. And he can drip water all over the floor, but he can't speak so that Rodney can hear him. Busaikko creates a fascinating world in this story, where magic is studied instead of science and the Stargate doesn't connect to other planets, but to the Other Side. Rodney and John's friendship is fun, their dedication to each other true to the show. But this isn't really a coming-of-age story, at least not entirely. There are a lot of things I could say about this story, but mostly it's a well-written, interesting read that hints at things, but never quite prepares you for what comes at the end.

Warnings: non-con, at least at first
Author on LJ: trophic

Why This Must Be Read: This is a bit dark, very kinky and blisteringly hot. How far will John go to repair his city? And what inducements will the city offer? After all, we have to imagine it can read his mind through the interface and knows what he secretly wants ...
Also, despite his opening line, I love Rodney's pragmatic obliviousness to what's going on.

Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay
Pairings: Sheppard/McKay, minor Sheppard/OC
Categories: Slash, Alternate Universe
Warnings: none
Author on LJ: frostfire_17

Link: The Hostage Major

Why This Must Be Read: This story is well-written crack in the best possible way. It has Rodney kidnapping John for his own good (ie. to stop him from marrying a woman he doesn't really like much for money). The two men play off each other brilliantly and sound perfectly in-character despite the ridiculous situation.

Why This Must Be Read: This fantastic exploration of the Bill Lee's first encounter with SG-1 - and, particularly, Daniel - is not only a gripping story, but also a wonderful outsider POV of team friendship. I love the way Bill tries to understand the dynamics of Sam and Jack and Daniel's interactions with one another, and how so much goes over his head even as the reader comprehends SG-1's unique closeness. Add typical Jb drama and tension, and you've got a long, engrossing story of SG-1 at its best.

Pairings: Ford/McKay, Teyla/Sora
Categories: Slash, Cannon AU
Warnings: None
Author on LJ: Unknown
Author's Website: AO3 Profile
Link: Pegasus Galaxy's Lost and Found Section

Why This Must Be Read: This story's an interesting look at what might've happened had Rodney found a way to stay behind in the Pegasus Galaxy after the Ancient's kicked the expedition out (no, I'll let you read and figure out how that happened, because it's quite clever in its simplicity). The pairings aren't ones I usually read, but Stella Wind does a lovely job of sneaking them into the story in a way that doesn't feel forced and yet makes it entirely secondary to the main plot of the story. She's got some interesting ideas here too, speculations about the Ancients, Atlantis, and also does a nice job of tying in a few places that got featured or mentioned in various episodes and shows their potential past what the show did.

It's possibly not the most exciting story ever, but the theories explored here are original and more than made up for that to me. It definitely deserves more love than it seems to have gotten on AO3, so go check it out!

Why This Must Be Read: Happy and fairly fluffy (not literally) consensual tentacle fic for a change! Well, not that Daniel asked for them, but he gets used to them quickly and is generally enhanced - Jack certainly thinks so. This is in many ways the usual "oh no an alien tech disaster we must apply science" SG1 scenario, but Daniel rapidly adapts to his appendages and soon takes them for granted, and, as you'd expect, when things get slashy they're a lot of fun for both him and Jack. Also, unlike the various mutations we see in canon, Daniel gets to keep them (yay!) (minor spoiler)

Godless Provenance by Lisette (mature)

Categories: Gen, Crossover
Warnings: Angst, Violence
Author on LJ: Unknown
Author's Website: Lisette at TthFanfic.org, FanFiction.net and Personal Website
Link: Godless Provenance

Why This Must Be Read: Glory's portal redirects the stargate wormhole just as SG1 steps through, putting both SG1 and Buffy in enemy hands.

It is an amazingly well thought out story. It does have a pairing I never expected to like (Buffy/Jack), but somehow the author makes it work really well. The chemistry between Buffy and Jack is just perfect. The bond of trust and love they have built due to the desperation of the situation they find themselves in is again perfect. And despite the terror and despair, there are still plenty of funny lines to make you smile.

Author on LJ: bironic
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: Why Rodney Should Stop Recommending Planets the Ancients Struck from their Database, or, The One with Tentacle Hentai on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: First, because it's incredibly hot tentcle-fic and of course, really well written. But it's also an exploration of an accidental alien encounter exposing one of John's major kinks. Yes, as with all AMTDI tentacle fic it's non-con, initially anyway, but the nature of the alien creature's advances and the fact that they're both going through it together ramps up the experience for them both, and leaves Rodney with some insights into John - and into himself. The John/Rodney relationship is more UST than real, even in the epilogue, but we can hope ...
There's also a brief, super-hot epilogue In his room at night, alone

Why This Must Be Read: Tentacle fic this month, just for a change, so all my recs are going to be pretty high-rated. No idea why, but there's just not a lot of genfic in this category *grin* . This one is excellent, as it's a great exploration of the difference between fantasy and reality, as John and Rodney take the first steps toward a relationship. With the help of some tentacles, of course. Highly recommended.

Wolves of the Apocalypse by issaro (PG-13)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Alternate Universe
Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay
Pairings: McKay/Sheppard
Categories: Slash, Apocafic, Angst
Warnings: Violence, Widespread Death, PTSD
Author on LJ: Unknown
Author's Website: AO3 profile
Link: Werewolves of the Apocalypse

Why This Must Be Read: It's an apocalypse fic with werewolves. How can anything possibly get more awesome than that? (I say this even though I'm not generally much of an apocafic fan.)

So, Werewolves of the Apocalypse is actually a series of two stories which the author had clearly intended to continue on at some point and didn't for whatever reason. Don't be scared by its unfinished status, though, because the open ending of the second story does make for a satisfying conclusion. In the first story, Travelling with Wolves, issaro does an amazing job of showing us our two characters meeting as well as their individual experiences of the end of the world, which were vastly different. The second story shows them getting to know each other better as they reach their destination, while tip-toeing around each other's idiosyncrasies and neurosis. Up until the end, issaro does a great job keeping the reader guessing as to what exactly happened to create the fever that killed the majority of the world's population. It's definitely well worth the read!
